Hospitals and university hospitals: We appeal to officials to take prompt and urgent rescue steps before it is too late


Statement issued by hospitals and university hospitals:

Hospitals that are in the eye of the storm are grappling with challenges at various levels and are facing more obstacles that prevent them from continuing to provide the necessary care and treatment to patients due to the lack of medical and therapeutic supplies and some vital medicines.

In this context, the University Hospitals Group held a hypothetical emergency meeting with a committee that includes the Syndicates of importers of medical supplies and devices, importers of medicines and a delegation from the two unions, where representatives of importers stated that they face external obstacles with the supplier companies, most of which have stopped the facilities that were previously granted to Lebanese companies due to the delay In paying its dues, it also faces internal obstacles represented in the delay in completing transactions with the Banque du Liban and commercial banks, which hinders the timely delivery of quantities of supplies and some required medicines to hospitals.

The follow-up of the provision of hospital services has become very difficult and not guaranteed, and it is subject to the availability of necessary medical supplies, many of which have become missing or unavailable except at fantastic prices.

Based on the foregoing, we strongly appeal to all the officials directly concerned with the matter, especially His Excellency the Governor of the Banque du Liban and His Excellency the Minister of Public Health, whom we wish health and a speedy recovery, and we also appeal to the various officials to take prompt and urgent rescue steps before it is too late and before the citizens’ health becomes In the wind. We urge everyone to work diligently to provide medical supplies and medicines to hospitals immediately, so that they can continue to provide hospital services to various patients. Note that hospitals will spare no effort in exerting everything that can be done in order to continue to fulfill their mission in serving patients, especially in light of the current delicate and critical circumstances.
